These plushy little bundles are actually stuffed fully customizable toys. The Plusform from Shawnimals and Squibbles Inc is like a three dimensional blank canvas that you can paint, colour, or sew fun extras on, like a tail or rhinestone eyes.

The critter, based on the Shawnimals popular Wee Ninja character, makes a great gift idea too as you can tailor the plushie to fit anyone's taste, or to suit any scenario, from birthdays and anniversaries to get-well gifts.

"Our primary goal since the beginning was to develop a DIY designer toy that everyone would enjoy working with," says Squibbles owner, Joe Somers. "Folks who may have been curious to work on vinyl figures now have a friendly form they can take out of the box, and get straight to being creative."

What a great way to get your kids hooked on the growing DIY movement!
